As a filmmaker, artist, musician, dancer, designer or writer, you know that it can be expensive to get your projects off the ground. Just like a business, you need funding to bring your ideas to life. Crowdfunding can help you make it happen by tapping into your social network to gain support.
To raise money for your passion, you need to get others to be passionate about it too. What’s the best way to do that?
- Make a video pitching your masterpiece
- Show a sketch
- Share your first track
- A copy of the CD
- An autographed book
- A personal thank you phone call
- A postcard from the set
- A DVD of the movie
